Katrina Kaif recently hinted at the loneliness to be found at the top of any profession, and southern superstar Ileana concedes it’s much the same for her in Kollywood. Her only friend, she says, is fellow southern star Trisha, who is now Bollywood bound, so the question is – will Ileana follow in Trisha’s footsteps or be left behind by her friend? “I would say that Trisha is my only friend in Tamil Industry,” she confirms, “If we both are in Hyderabad, we would somehow manage to meet-up regularly and do girly stuffs together. We get in touch with each other often through phone too.”
Ileana’s greatest love of her life, however, is her cats – she has ten of them, including a little black kitten, recently bought for her as a birthday present by her mother. She also has a couple of dogs, who must be feeling a bit overwhelmed.
Ileana is currently looking forward to the T-Town release of Saleem with Vishnu, which had a mega-budget, for the south, of 23 crores. She is also working on a movie with the shooting title of Tom & Jerry opposite Ram. In Kollywood, she is lined up to star opposite Vikram in 24.
